And are you certain that your x4 last for 8 hours while playing games?

Apple phones runs any game smoothly but playing for just one hour and battery is dead is not funny anymore.
My Moto X4 when was brand new that 3000 mAh battery was able to last 8 hours.
And that was 2 years ago.

Especially for the fact that you're only require to pay $5 per month. And you'll have access to every apple arcade game! Compared that to PC or consoles. Where you need to spend $60 or more for a single game! And if the games that you've get are poorly optimized or is full of bugs. That money you've spent is gone for good!
And what's even worst? Can you control your children from playing gambling games, and don't have like $500 or more on your billing statement?

Good only if quality content continues to trickle in. Spend more on developers.

Plus point is no in-app purchase.

This could be a win, if the games are good. No ads and no IAP is huge.

As a console/pc gamer i hope this fails badly. Ever since the advent of the freemium/ingame-ads/pay to unlock the quality of games has really gone down. Graphics have improved somewhat but playvalue has certainly gone down.
This new cloud based subscription gaming has all the elements of addiction or rather they want to keep you hooked on by all means so that you keep subscribed. Games were good when they would end not this never-ending brainless addiction material.

This seems appealing but it all comes down to the games they have available. They say exclusives but I don't see Apple acting like Sony or Nintendo, working hand to hand with developers in the creation of exclusive tittles.

This is interesting

No ads and no iap. Sold.
